History of the Charity: The 18 members of the two Charities are technically Shareholders of the Housing Association and a Management Board of 12 members is elected on a rotational basis to manage the bungalows.
As a registered charity and registered social landlord, the Association is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA). It was formerly known as the Annabelle Lady Boughey and Mary Roddam Housing Trust and took its current name in 2005.
The funding for the purchase of land and development was offered by The Annabelle Lady Boughey Charity, Mary Roddam Aid in Sickness Fund and Newport (Salop) District Nursing Association. With this money, the Housing Trust was incorporated on 24th July 1961 and a plot of land in Longford Road was purchased for £250 from Newport Urban District Council (who had previously purchased it from the Roman Catholic Church) for the purpose of building bungalows for old people. Five bungalows were built and the first occupants were retired nurses.
In 1969 Snow’s Yard, at the rear of Adams House, was purchased from Mrs Sandiford for £3,000 and eight bungalows were built.
The next development in 1976 of 9 bungalows was at Havisham Court on land purchased from The Boughey Trust for £9,250.
In 1991 four bungalows were built on a plot at the rear of the tennis courts purchased from The Boughey Trust for £29,000 and in 1995 a further four bungalows were built on this land.
In 2003 a plot of land at 30 Beaumaris Road was bought by the Trust for £190,000. Six bungalows were built and occupied in May 2006 as Clemmett Close.
In March 2007, two two-
